    Students during their academic stage of Education face some of the unusual risks and responsibilities because during that period of Education they venture some of the tough challenges in life due to not only the peer pressure but also due to so many natural temptations in life. It's the young age that we all have gone thru in life and ventured so many challenges that allow us to face some of the strange experiences in life. Majority of us survive in spite of so many challenges, but today the risks and challenges one too many indeed, and they need so many precautions and preventions that cannot be overlooked at any cost.

    Each of the College student as well as the faculty member has to be conscious of the risks and challenges that are ahead of them due to so many prevailing circumstances that are surrounding them in this ever-changing world.

    More and more training in order to prevent any possible danger is therefore essential. Ultimately, the responsibilities are rested in the hands of the Institution, and the possible consequences can be one too many to avoid. We therefore strongly encourage any possible training and surveillance that can prevent the students as well as the Institution from any unavoidable situation that will bring forward a smooth and safe life of normalcy both for the students as well as the faculty members.
